The conditional branching sample ( LoanApprovalProcess.bar ) can be found in the <BPS-HOME>/repository/samples/bpmn directory. 

Flow of the sample

In this sample scenario, a loan approval process is displayed.

  1. The clerk user fills the required details (income and loan amount), which is then sent for confirmation.
  2. At the exclusive gateway, if the loan amount is higher than 50,000, a request is sent to the clerk user to revise the loan amount. In this case, the user can revise and resubmit the loan application.
  3. If the loan amount does not exceed 50,000, the "review application" task is triggered and the manager user can approve the loan application. 

The following XML code snippet is the LoanProcess.bpmn definition of the exclusive gateway that declares the condition mentioned above.

<sequenceFlow id="flow4" sourceRef="exclusivegateway1" targetRef="usertask3">
    <conditionExpression xsi:type="tFormalExpression"><![CDATA[${loanAmount>50000}]]></conditionExpression>

Note: usertask3 is the id of the "revise amount" task. At the declaration of the exclusive gateway, flow3 is defined as the default. This makes "review application" the default task that will be executed after the condition.

<exclusiveGateway id="exclusivegateway1" name="Exclusive Gateway" default="flow3"></exclusiveGateway>
